New York, June 30, 2016 – Irving H. Picard, Securities Investor Protection Act (SIPA) Trustee for the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC (BLMIS), commenced the seventh pro rata interim distribution from the customer fund to eligible BLMIS customers on June 30, 2016.
The SIPA Trustee is distributing approximately $190.247 million on a pro rata basis to BLMIS account holders with allowed claims, bringing the aggregate amount distributed to eligible claimants to approximately $9.47 billion, which includes approximately $836.6 million in committed advances from the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). The seventh distribution represents 1.305 percent of each claim dollar and will be paid on claims relating to 972 BLMIS accounts to record holders of allowed claims as of June 15, 2016.
